Back to Basics with Lomography

Lomography has hit Bloomsbury and we're so excited! How can you not resist the elegant looks of these fantastic cameras, and within the digital age of camera phones, actually getting your film processed and not quite knowing how they will turn out is great! We've selected some of the most beautiful cameras to stock in-store and online the La Sardina being our favourite. Take a look at this beauty the La Sardina Grand Cru!
Simply load with 35mm film and away you go. The La Sardina also comes fitted with a 89degree wide angle lense to capture all the action. You'll also find a range of fantastic Lomography films at Bloomsbury too.

Each film has been created by Lomography to give the best results wherever you're shooting. Their specialty films, such as the Redscale Lobster 110 films, create an exciting escape from reality with their super saturated colours.

We'd love to see how you use the Lomo cameras - send any photos to

Happy Birthday Mr Hornby

We would like to wish Mr Hornby a very Happy 150th Birthday!
The inventor of the Hornby trains and also Meccano is hailed as a great toy constructor and has changed the way we play forever. He first started by creating toys for his own children in 1899, he soon realised by creating interchangable pieces for tracks a whole new world was created each time you played with them. Based on real engineering principles the Hornby toys soon become a firm favourite with everyone!

We have a great range of Hornby products for the grown up collector! Just click here!

Seasonal tips with Paul Smith

We recently had our seasonal visit from Kim and Noel from Paul Smith Accessories, and as always they were full of interesting facts about this seasons collection. We were reminded of the Paul Smith stripe being the 'DNA' of the brand and told this season onwards they are looking to use it in more select and subtle ways. After all they are a fashion house and need to evolve! You will notice this season we have the stripe on only a few wallets and phone cases, these are still of course top sellers but we're seeing the stripe used in more ways - such as on the multi-check scarf and multi-check swim shorts - so expect more like this next season. Autumn Winter will also see a much darker stripe so if you are keen on the bright stripe now maybe your best chance to indulge yourself!
Multi-check swim shorts - £89.95
We're really excited to have some beautiful exclusive handbags from Paul Smith this season. The gorgeous Albermarle and Westbourne bags are really luxury soaked handbags made in Italy in classic designs with fashion forward colours. These bags are very striking in both colour and design and so to give them gravity Paul has named them after two of his London stores.

Recognising that people no longer buy bags for different occasions Paul Smith have made their designs as versatile as possible, including zipped pockets and pouches, different length straps and from next season all handbags will have a pouch for your Ipad. Things to go next season will be the ladies attached keyfob and the the hardware on the Swirl bags will say goodbye also. Looking forward to next season the swirl is going all 60's with a super Maxi swirl design.We're also happy to be stocking more items made in the UK such as the scarves and gloves, these are all denoted by the special 'Made in the UK' swing tickets. Look out for the swing tickets with Paul's camera on also, these items feature photo's taken by Sir Paul himself!
